. then senator obama answered that question by saying, the president does not have power under the constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation. i pressed jay carney on that point today in the daily briefing and also, meanwhile, republicans like john mccain tonight are saying, if there is going to be military action, it cannot be a symbolic action, backing up the president's rhetoric about a red line, it's got to be serious action that decimates assad's military. take a listen. >> do you believe that exists right now? >> i believe it is a threat to the united states. i believe that absolutely allowing the use of chemical weapons on a significant scale to take place, without a response would present a significant challenge to -- a threat to the united states national security interests. >> if it's simply that we launch some cruise missiles and do that for three gayes and not have a significant effect on the momentum on the battlefield. it will have a -- an unhelpful effect. if we do it right, and

know what we know, the question is what will we do let me empsoys. president obama and we in the united states we believe in the united nations and great respect for the brave inspector who endured regime gunfire and obstructions to their investigation. and as the security general moon said again and again, the un investigation will not affirm who used these chemical weapons. that is not the mandate of the un investigation. they will only a whether such weapons were used. by the definition of their own mandate, the un can't tell us anything that we haven't shared with you this afternoon and we don't already know and because of the guaranteed russian obstructionism of any action of the un security council, the un cannot dwaflinnize the world to act the way it should. let me be clear, we'll talk to the congress and talking to our allies and most importantly talking to the american people and president obama will insure that the united states of america makes our decisions on our own time lines and based on our value asks in our interest. now we know that after a decade of conflict, the am
a very strong political taint. if you wouldn't say obama is weak, you know why he is weak, it is not because of failure to act. it is because 80% of the american people think he shouldn't act. >> you were on this panel on special report this week saying the president can't operate by polls. >> correct. >> is this president operating by polls? >> i don't think there is any question that he's responding to polls and responding to people within his own party. he is responding to manchin, carl levin. responding to libertarians like rand paul who oppose it. she not listening to john kerry, he is not listening to john mccain. they are hard line and they want him to go and go now. >> the time he should have been listening is before he made the announcement we have to act. before kerry said in front of the world the word of america is at stake. before the entire administration leaked the plan to explain exactly were it had to act. right now we are way beyond the other arguments, we are way beyond the polls. way beyond the issues, is this the best way to attack. i this it is not. t
